Cohen had worked within short term finance since 1998. Firstly joining bridging lender Cheval, where he was a director of marketing until 2005, later moving to Affirmative Finance and then acting as a consultant for Masthaven Bridging Finance.

Cohen was appointed chairman of the AoBP in 2010 at the Association’s launch.

Long-term colleague Benson Hersch, chief executive of the Association of Short Term Lenders (ASTL), said: “The members of the ASTL and I personally, were very sad to hear of the passing of Sidney Cohen this morning.

“I knew Sidney for 15 years. He played a pivotal role in the bridging industry for many years.

“He will be very sadly missed by all who knew him. Sidney was always a larger than life character, he loved the industry and was still working almost until the day that he died.”
