An Assistant Branch Manager will have a slightly different skill set than does a Branch Manager, with a higher degree of technical skills (knowledge of regulatory rules and requirements) and administrative skills (knowledge about the organization and how it works) than would the Branch Manager, and less experience with human skills (the ability to manage people), and decision-making and problem-solving skills. The typical career progression for the Assistant Branch Manager is to eventually become a Branch Manager.
