You need to be a professional investor / industry insider and / or have £500,000 to open a CFD account.  I suspect having at least £500,000 to deposit is given the greater weight.

Don't understand the question but a CFD account is similar to a spread betting account but with different tax liabilities. You only need the 500k or industry experience if you want to be registered as a professional and so have access to greater leverage. Because SB and CFD are leveraged there is a higher qualifying bar than that of a share dealing account such as min  income and savings.
