There is only the ABF Singapore Bond ETF, which is to my knowledge the only passively-managed bond fund in this country. However, the ETF suffers from problems like liquidity, large bid-ask spread and trading prices not tracking its NAV properly. It behaves more like a stock than a bond index fund at times.

To complicate the matter, SGS bonds cannot be bought online (unless you consider FSM secondary SGS bond market).
