I am currently unsure on what course to pursue. Which course would give me a better chance to get into investment banking? economics, or accounting and finance?

Also, would a degree of accounting and finance from LSE, give you an edge over an undergrad graduating with an economics degree from cambridge?

For a given individual, university generally matters more than university subject when it comes to investment banking. So it's sort of neither here nor there wrt economics vs. accounting and finance, especially as they're both geared towards work in the financial sector.

To answer your second question - no. If anything, all other things being equal, the Cambridge grad will have an advantage over the LSE grad as Cambridge has the more prestigious brand name. This advantage may not be so large for investment banking, but will be a lot bigger for top-tier management consultancies, elite asset management firms and private equity, which are extremely selective and hire only a handful of grads.
