Stochastic volatility models assume that volatility follow a random process.In the emerging market the volatility tend to be high. why is it that the wishart stochastic volatility model fit well the emerging market

Generally, the Wishart stochastic volatility model identifies the volatility of the asset as the trace of a Wishart process. Contrary to a classic multifactor Heston model, this model allows to add degrees of freedom with regard to the stochastic correlation. Thanks to its flexibility, this model enables a better fit of market data than the Heston model. Besides, the Wishart volatility model keeps a clear interpretation of its parameters and conserves an efficient tractability.It was showed that calibration of Wishart stochastic volatility model is easier than SV model.
