This paper proposes a novel methodology for integrating nan- cial risk and operational risk. In order to demonstrate the approach, we use real data from a telecommunication company providing services to enterprises in di erent business lines and geographical locations. For each enterprise, we have collected information about operational and nancial performance. Our objective is to produce a coherent measure of risk, integrating operational losses from various types of equipment failures and nancial risks derived from balance sheet information. The approach demonstrated in this case study can be generalized to general service providers who need to account for both the quality of service and the nancial solvency of their customers. Adressing risks in both dimensions is critical to long term sustainability and business continuity.
