UK Quant degree: Imperial Mathematics and Finance vs Cambridge Mathematical Statistics

Hi guys, I'm applying for MSc 'Mathematics and Finance' in Imperial college and also MAST 'Mathematical Statistics' in Cambridge. I already have 2-3 years experience as a developer in a quant hedge fund in London. My goal is to become a quantitative researcher in London. Would any of these 2 degrees help me to achieve this? Should I apply to MSc Mathematical and Computational Finance in Oxford as well? From my research LSE/UCL/Kings are not really targets, so is there any point to try with them as well?
There's a similar question from 3 years ago: 'msc-oxford-mcf-vs-msc-imperial-college-maths-and-finance' , but Cambridge and the other unis were not involved in that discussion.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks automatic reply bot ;) But your suggestions are quite general, while my question is more specific and those links do not answer it directly ! :)
