New York's power couple Jill and Bobby Zarin have joined a leading luxury loan company, and a top charitable organization to provide relief to victims of typhoon Haiyan.

The couple recently collaborated with Suttons & Robertsons, one of London's oldest bespoke loan companies, to unlock a collection of 30 rare pieces of artwork by Al Hirschfeld which will be sold off for Typhoon Haiyan Relief benefiting The American Red Cross.

The Zarins will donate the profits from the sale of their artwork and Suttons & Robertsons will contribute an additional amount that will be donated to The American Red Cross.

Through the “Hirschfelds for Haiyan” program the Zarin’s 30-piece collection will debut at the Suttons & Robertsons flagship location in New York City beginning January 6, 2014.

When asked about the “Hirschfelds for Haiyan” project, Jill said: “Bobby and I are thrilled to be able to contribute a portion of our personal art collection to do something for people in such dire need.” She added, “My mother taught me, and I have passed it onto my daughter Allyson, that ‘to those much is given, much is expected.’ I only hope that these portraits are cherished and enjoyed by their new owners as much as we enjoyed having them in our homes. They are reminders of our favorite TV shows, movies, Broadway shows and comedians that have given our family and friends hours of enjoyment.”

Opening January 6, 2014, Suttons & Robertsons’ newest store at 875 Third Avenue (at 52nd Street) represents the 240-year-old lender’s first expansion outside of Europe.

The breathtaking and luxurious 2,500-square-foot New York space will be home to the corporation’s US headquarters and include retail space and private collateralized lending facilities.

At a time when banks and other forms of traditional lending have become more difficult to access, asset-rich New Yorkers will now have a place to temporarily trade their precious possessions for cash.

In addition to offering loans upwards of $1 million, the New York store will buy and sell gold, diamonds, fine estate jewelry, watches, artwork and antiques. Some of the fascinating and exceptional items valued and held as pledges over the years by Suttons & Robertsons have included: a 19th Century Russian side cabinet that once belonged to Tsar Nicholas II; artwork by Salvador Dali and Damien Hirst; a first edition X-Men comic; rare pink, green, and blue diamonds; and a myriad of rare timepieces.

Since 1770, Suttons & Robertsons has built an eminent reputation as one of the most discreet and discerning collateral loan companies for high-value assets ranging from Rolex watches and diamonds to artwork by Picasso.

Chairman and CEO Jeff Weiss explains, “We are thrilled to bring a legacy of valuation expertise and world-class service to New York and continue our global expansion of this extraordinary brand. At a time when many individuals are facing short-term cash needs, Suttons & Robertsons will present a confidential and highly efficient lending option.” For more information, please visit:
