Default US Spouse - US based income or has to be UK sourced?

Hi, this seems like a basic question but I want to ensure I'm getting it right. My (American) wife and I are planning on moving back to the UK. Her company is offering to provide her a job in the UK. But does the finance requirement of spouse visa mean we cannot rely on past US income + UK job offer to meet the criteria? The income has to be from a job in the UK, even if we're applying from outside the US? Is the same true for savings, if we went that route do the savings also have to be located in a UK institute?

Thanks in advance

It's YOU the British citizen who has to sponsor your wife - her income has no relevance to the application, if you are going the spouse route.
Read the following document to see under which category you can apply:

Savings can be allocated anywhere where the financial institute is recognised by UK financial regulators

The other route to go is for wife to get a work visa via her company.
