Subject doesn't matter too much in banking, choice of university has a bigger impact.

As you go down from the target universities, the more quantitative they prefer your degree.

Whatever degree you'l do the best in. (So, on a cliche note, the subject you enjoy the most)
They'l want you to perform highly, so a high 2:1 or a first would be way more valuable than anything else.

Well there's statistics with finance at LSE (they have a few other finance-y degrees) , anything at Warwick management school and then Economics any of Cambridge, Warwick, Oxford (it's economics & management at Oxford) and LSE are probably your best bet then.

Finance and economics generally, but the big i-banks do a lot to ensure diversity and hence are also looking for people with non-finance backgrounds such as history majors
