    Im deciding whether to do economics or maths. Maths will give me a broader range of options for jobs compared to economics. Doing maths at LSE isnt something Id want to do though.
    So the question is:

    LSE - economics or Oxford - Maths?

    Which will be better for a career in Investment banking.

    Oh my, they are both great options and I feel you're making a false dichotomy here.

    Pick the subject that is more of interest to you

    Why not Cambridge?! They have a brilliant Maths course. Yes, you have to do STEP but most mathematicians relish the challenge
