I'm interested in doing an undergrad that gives me options, but is generally focused on Math, and either Finance, Econ, and/or Data Science. My firms right now are Imperial Economics Finance and Data Science, and Warwick MORSE. I need 1 more top university to add to my application (along with 2 safety's). My choices are LSE Financial Mathematics and Statistics, and UCL Statistics Economics and Finance. Which degree is better?
You only really need one "backup" choice.

For maths generally Oxford, Cambridge and Bristol are all better than LSE or UCL.

If your goal is just to go into investment banking then it doesn't matter what degree subject you do. Either LSE or UCL are fine for that.
ucl has a better research side as they are quite varied
