Dubai's main share index jumped over 2%, marking its best day since Dec. 6, as investors flocked to the region after state utility DEWA's initial public offering kicked off last week.

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is looking to raise as much as 8.06 billion dirhams ($2.19 billion) in its IPO, marking the largest such deal in the emirate since DP World in 2007.

"The Dubai stock market rose as investors return to the market as DEWA's IPO makes the bourse more attractive and as global concerns retreat," said Daniel Takieddine, Chief Executive Officer of MENA BDSwiss.

Dubai's deputy ruler, Sheikh Maktoum Bin Mohammed, in November announced plans to take 10 government-linked companies public to boost stock market activity.
