Not directly, no.

Indirectly, I found something not too far off. JPMorgan offers a unit trust called the "U.S. Aggregate Bond Fund." It's a fund that invests in investment grade U.S. corporate bonds. The prospectus says at least 2/3rds of the bonds are U.S. federal government backed, typically federal government agency bonds. It's a feeder unit trust into a Luxembourg-based fund, which is tax appropriate for non-U.S. persons. The expense ratio is 1.10%, which is "less worse" than other choices. ("Welcome to Singapore." )

Why do you want to? This basically amounts to taking a giant slug of currency risk - and the fees you’d have to pay make it a pretty terrible trade.

You're trying to trade FX, then. You're pretty explicitly trying to make a bet on USD/SGD going up.
