Everyone always talks about the benefit of using two monitors instead of just one. More desktop space makes you more productive. You can compare two documents, see a spreadsheet side-by-side with a Word document, and multi-task better. Financial advisors now commonly use two monitors. But you don’t hear much about moving to a higher resolution monitor, which further expands the desktop and, thus, should make you even more productive.

you pick up a lot of increased desktop space with an ultra-high definition (UHD) (2560x1440) monitor instead of one with 1920x1080 resolution. If you like to keep your CRM open while running your portfolio management software and also have three or four browsers running, then the higher resolution comes in handy.
It won’t double the amount of information at your fingertips like using two monitors instead of one, but it will allow you to consume and analyze more information in one glance and make it easier to work on multiple projects throughout the day.
